ArtsNash Partners with The Clyde Fitch Report to Spotlight the Arts

ArtsNash is excited to announce a new partnership with The Clyde Fitch Report (! Twice a month beginning in January, we’ll post arts stories from the Report, which bills itself as “the nexus of arts and politics.” CFR, meanwhile, will spotlight articles from ArtsNash, which will provide Nashville’s various arts organizations with much deserved national exposure.

The Clyde Fitch Report was founded in 2006 by Leonard Jacobs, former national editor of the entertainment industry trade publication Back Stage, who joined the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in 2011 and is now Editor Emeritus. The CFR is currently run by co-curators Beck Feibelman (arts) and Roger Armbrust (politics), featuring more than a dozen contributors and correspondents covering arts and politics topics across the country and the globe.

Look for stories from The Clyde Fitch Report by clicking the “CFR” link that will soon appear in the category bar at the top of every ArtsNash page. We feel privileged to partner with a site where people with a range of arts interests and political beliefs may, according to its mission statement, “engage and argue, teach and learn, discover their commonalities, and, if possible, demolish their differences.”
